For the last few years, I've been putting together
information on my family history. I've made a lot of progress and
have traced several of my lines back to the immigrant ancestors.
Others I'm still working on.
- Vaughan - My paternal line. The Vaughans
arrived here from Wales in about 1866. Evan and Eleanor
Chinnock settled in Cleveland and had 10 children, seven of
whom survived to adulthood. Their youngest was Louis
Vaughan, my grandfather
- Schultz - Also my paternal line. The
Schultz family arrived here from Germany around 1875. My
great-great grandparents John P. and Elizabeth Schultz were
came form Wittenberg and Baden and settle in Cleveland. My
grandmother was Pearl Lillian Schultz.
- Vliet - My maternal line. My grandfather,
William Annin Vliet was born before the Civil War, in 1856.
His father, William French Vliet, was part of an expedition
from New Brunswick, New Jersey to California during the Gold
Rush. Following that he married and moved to
Cleveland. The Vliets appear to have arrived in this
country in the 17th century. There are a number of
Vliet lines in New Jersey, but I am having difficulty making
the appropriate connections
- Williams - Also my maternal line. The
Williams arrived here from Ireland in the early 1800s. They
settled in Middlesex County, New Jersey. From there some of
them moved to New York and then Illinois.
- Tracy - My husband's family. Predominantly Irish
and Scots, the Tracys, Ketchams, Miles and Hendries were all
from New England.
- Nichols - Ali's dad's family. Both the Whipkeys
and the Nichols are from West Virginia, mostly Calhoun County.
Soon there will be links to pedigree charts and other family
information here, including a gallery of some of our ancestors.
